Serge Aurier’s mistake cost Tottenham a place in the FA Cup fifth round as we drew 1-1 with Southampton this afternoon.
It had looked as though Son Heung-min’s second-half goal would be enough to send us through before Aurieritis struck again late on.
The Ivorian full-back took one too many touches in his own half and Southampton pounced to equalise with three minutes to go.
There are some who insist that Aurier has improved under Jose Mourinho, which may be true only because of the low ceiling he had set.
But these Spurs fans on Twitter have laughed at that notion.

Aurier reminding us that while Mourinho can improve you, he can't give you talent— H U Khan (@Huk06) January 25, 2020
Aurier at fault for the goal 🤷🏼♂️— Lawrence Mealing (@LawrenceMealing) January 25, 2020
‘Best player since mourinho has come in apparently’ 😂😂😂😂
If you buy a new house and the tap leaks for two weeks, you fix it.
If the tap starts leaking again a month later, you probably fix it again.
If the tap keeps on leaking, you buy a new tap. You have to kill the leak.
Aurier is the leak. The problem is – Daniel Levy is the plumber.
